This was a great hike! loved the scenic views of the river and waterfalls. We took the blue trail to the orange trail to the red trail then finished with the green trail before going back to blue. The blue trail was an easy trec along the river. The orange trail was absolutely beautiful. Butterflies and bees buzzed around the wild flowers. the red trail was a bit more difficult through the woods, up and down rocky terrine. The green trail led us to some historic rock ruins and down to a beautiful waterfall.

Favorite part was discovering an abandoned stone house by a small waterfall. Caught a couple fish out there too. Great trail for beginners

Wear pants (not shorts); lot of fun, especially the loop; we took the red trail with 6.3 miles. Finished in about 3.5 hours while stopping at the river streams.

Tracking the map with this app (pro user) was very helpful.
